The construction industry, staying connected and productive while on the go is no longer a luxury; it’s a necessity. To meet the demands of architects and professionals working in the field, Mentare presents an innovative virtual desktop service that revolutionizes the way projects are managed. With seamless access to desktop applications and files, regardless of location or device, architects can now take control of their work like never before.

Construction Case Study

The Challenge

The company boasts a talented team of 50+ highly-experienced design engineers, whose productivity and efficiency are critical to their success. However, they face several challenges that can lead to costly setbacks. Each engineer relies on an individual workstation with high specifications, essential for running the AutoCAD VDI software smoothly. Unfortunately, this setup comes with vulnerabilities as all design data is stored locally, making projects susceptible to immediate disruption in case of any failures. Moreover, the engineers are largely confined to fixed desks, lacking the flexibility of remote or mobile work, hindering their potential for greater productivity.

  • Vulnerability of the existing workstation infrastructure to individual failures.
  • Limited flexibility, as staff can only work from fixed desks, impacting overall productivity.
  • •The need to improve resilience and security for uninterrupted operations.

The Solution

Mentare introduces an innovative solution to empower design engineers and optimize their productivity. By implementing a cloud-based virtual desktop service, Mentare ensures that desktops are deployed strategically to users, precisely when they require peak performance. Leveraging cutting-edge GPU-based centralized server farm technology, the Mentare VDI for architecture solution grants architects access to their crucial data from any device, in any architectural application environment. This centralized approach securely stores all project and design files, eliminating the risk of data loss while allowing seamless access for designers, regardless of their location or device.

Mentare’s comprehensive virtual desktop service extends its benefits to the entire construction industry, addressing challenges specific to the architecture field. From aiding in design and proof-of-concept stages to facilitating smooth installation and deployment processes, Mentare offers robust solutions for every step of the architectural journey. Furthermore, their emphasis on centralized data security ensures that sensitive information remains safeguarded at all times.

  • Strategic deployment of desktops for optimized productivity.
